A fantastic and easy going bulbous species from the Mediterranean (not Peru!).
Beautiful clusters of purple / blue flowers are produced in late spring and held above the long strap-like leaves.
Sow the seed at any time of year, but germination nearly always occurs in the spring after a period of winter chilling. Sow 5-10mm deep into a good quality seed compost and cover with fine grit, before placing in a cold frame or greenhouse.
